National Register of Historic Places in San Joaquin County
The John Ohm house is significant for its association with San Joaquin City and with John Ohm, one of the San Joaquin Valley's most prominent citizens. Although once a busy shipping point on the San Joaquin River, San Joaquin City vanished shortly after World War I, leaving the Ohm house as one of the few reminders of its existence. Subject to little change over the years, the house and its complex of outbuildings provide an excellent insight into farm life at the turn-of-the-century.
